St. Louis area Walmarts lock-up ammo ahead of protests

Several Walmart locations locked-up ammunition during weekend protests | St. Louis“MAPLEWOOD ( – Several Walmart stores in the St. Louis area have pulled ammunition from the shelves following recent protests.

Monday night, demonstrators made their way into Walmart locations in Maplewood, Ferguson and Bridgeton, forcing the stores to close while several arrests were made.

On Wednesday afternoon, the empty shelves at Maplewood looked like there had been a mass purchase of ammunition. But according to an employee, it was locked up in the back. – St. Louis


Times ahead could get interesting for a variety of reasons. If you’ve been paying attention, you know why. Apparently, several Walmarts in the St. Louis area decided things were looking interesting enough that they removed ammunition from their shelves entirely.

This could easily come to a Walmart or other retailer near you in times of social unrest or natural disasters. To that end, ammo prices are starting to normalize finally and supplies are picking back up ever so slowly. I am not suggesting a new run on ammunition but, as time and funds allow, you should be buying in a time of plenty.
